When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Saint Paul Ave / Walnut St neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 32.3%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 98.9% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: People
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Saint Paul Ave / Walnut St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
In addition, of note, 59.7% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Saint Paul Ave / Walnut St
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 97.7% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Saint Paul Ave / Walnut St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
24.1% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Saint Paul Ave / Walnut St neighborhood has more
African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 17.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry.
Saint Paul Ave / Walnut St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 87.2% of the real estate in the Saint Paul Ave / Walnut St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 55.8% of the residential real estate vacant, the Saint Paul Ave / Walnut St neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
